In which Moll, a girl who invents things, creates The Third Ear, a miraculous machine for hearing sounds that can't be heard. But a master of disguises, The Mercenary, steals the machine (and Moll's heart) at the bidding of two dark-dwellers. Will the crafty Moll and her reluctant guide, the boy virgin Oliver, be able to raft the river, cross the chasm and mount the mountain in time to reclaim the device? Will the Third Ear destroy noise and narrative as we know it? Tune in to this quirky fable of innocence and experience to find out. Part of the 2004 Humana Festival.
